Beauty fans are skipping expensive manicures and popping down to their local Primark instead

It’s now easier than ever to cheat your way to well-maincured fingertips thanks to Primark’s new range of false nails.

As if producing an unexpectedly impressive beauty range wasn’t enough, the bargain high street store has only gone and done it again thanks to its range of £1 stick ons.

Gone are the days of spending your hard-earned cash on having a professional buff and polish your nails, because now you can achieve the exact same look for far less cash.


Starting at just £1, you can own an array of simple sets boasting pretty pastel colours. Or for just an extra £1 you can try the more intricate designs and styles for the bargain price of £2.

Pointed tips, chrome, marble patterns, glitter and nails with metallic finishes have proven to be extremely popular purchases for the nail-obsessed.

Other designs feature tie dye and unicorn effects.

And because the packs are so affordable, you can go wild and buy yourself a couple of sets to mix and match, creating your own custom nail look.

Fans of the new range have been taking to Instagram to heap praise on Primark, commending the store for delivering such professional results in a budget range.

One fan showed off her customised look by adding a studded-effect nail alongside her bright pink nails, captioning her image: ‘They’ve lasted a week and I’m so happy!! I don’t tend to wear press on nails, although @primark have an AMAZING range right now and I am really obsessed.’

Beauty blogger Rebecca Ashley gave the line a glowing review, assuring fellow nail-art fans that the range is incredibly trustworthy.

‘For a quid, these aren’t bad at all really. I would probably pick another pair up if I had a special occasion coming up where I wanted nice nails. I would recommend buying your own nail glue as the one that came in the pack is pretty crap, but it does the job. They are a beautiful design, so I would use these particular ones again.’

If £1 gives you stunning new nails, buying your own nail glue seems like a very small price to pay.
